Frankly, such thing has never happened to me, but I do not own a Honda. Perhaps you will hear from others, Honda owners or not.

I had the “Anti Theft System” “The Navigation system has lost power. Push and hold the power button for more than two seconds to enable the system.” Message come up today. I was powering the car on and off with the Start button. Finally the girlfriend says try the radio power button. That worked.

My 2017 civic touring lost power to the anti theft system. Nav and entertainment system didn’t work. Screen instructed hold down the power button for two secs to reset. It should say hold down the audio button for two secs to reset. Poor choice of semantics

So my 2016 Honda Civic had the exact same issue. Yes holding down the audio power button for 2 seconds did reset the system. But now the car doesn’t recognize my phone when I plug it into the phone USB port. Does anyone know a simple fix to this?

Did you ever figure this out? The exact same message came up on my 2016 Honda but I didn’t get the chance to read it all. It is working fine but I can’t find anything on this. Have you?
